Having never played SimCity Societies (read about it and decided against it) I am hoping for the same thing for 5 as you are.

I loved sc3000, sc4 I found to really lagg on (current for the time) machines of decent caliber once you had a large city.... Might be worth a re-visit of SC4 with today's hardware and see if it still suffers from what was probably just poor coding.

Wow, i didn't event know about simcity 5 until i read this.

I played most of the pc versions except 3000. I played lots of simcity classic and simcity 2000. I really loved simcity 4 (especially during night shifts ).

I played a couple hours of societies, i didn't liked it very much although i didn't hate it either. I just like to deal with a much larger amount of sims and developpement to cover than to check how many creativity i have to produce in order to construct the movie theater...

I also played Cities XL (after it went full offline), and i loved the game, seriously. But for some stupid reason, they decided to go single threaded... So when i reached a certain number of population, the game started to chop, and i had one core of my CPU maxed... So i stopped playing the game. They are on their third release of the game (citiesxl 2012) and they still didn't fixed that...

Anyways, so much typing to say, sim city 5 = DO WANT!

All I ask is for two things: the ability to APPROVE buildings before they go up (no shanty towns next to my high end condo towers) and NO SIMS in the game.

I wouldn't hold my breath on there not being any Sims in it. The building approval idea is interesting, though don't you think it would get out of hand in a big city?

I always preferred to micro manage my cities so I don't think it would get out of hand. Basically, have to settings: auto approve or manual. I'd probably leave it on auto pilot until I zone for mid density or high rises.

Another thing I want is a continuation of SimCity 4's excellent line of mod tools into this new version.

Bolded part is definitely important to me as well. I think instead of the auto approve or manual maybe a slider with a minimum building "quality" would work better, maybe with a further option for manual control. I could see it getting very annoying if I was on highest speed waiting to build up cash for some expansion and having loads of building approval messages pop up.

Well as much as it looked cool, they already ruined it for me.

Multiplayer, and with sims.

Stupid multiplayer, I don't need to play with everyone else. I just want a new modern Simcity, none of this multiplayer sim crap!!
